“For let him who wants to enjoy life and see good days [good – whether apparent or not] keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile (treachery, deceit).” 1 Peter 3:10 (AMPC)
Me and my big mouth! Do you realize that, oftentimes, the trouble or drama that we experience started with our mouth? God created humans in HIS image; therefore, we have creative power. Our creative power starts with what we say. The moment we say things, we put a reality in motion. When we speak life, we utter the creative force of positivity and victory. When we speak evil, deceit, or anything contrary to God’s will, we empower an enemy to wreak havoc in our lives. Jesus tells us in Luke 6:45 that we speak from the abundance of our heart. In other words, whatever we’ve been thinking about, meditating on, focused upon will take root and we can find ourselves talking it into reality. I was a SITCOM kid and I loved watching Different Strokes (if you remember that show then you’re dating yourself), but the younger brother would ask, “Whatchu talkin’ ‘bout Willis?” when he didn’t quite understand what his older brother was saying. So, Saint, I ask, “Whatchu talkin’ ‘bout?”
Application For The Day:
Let’s walk in the fullness of the VICTORY that Jesus has already given us!!! Speak LIFE!
Prayer For The Day:
Father, from this day forward I will watch my words and only speak life into my situations as well as others. I will no longer allow my tongue to rule and reign negatively in my life, but it will reign with VICTORY, in Jesus’ Name!
